Eucalyptus invasions in riparian forests: Effects on native vegetation community diversity, stand structure and composition.
(Elsevier B.V., 2013)
Effects of alien plant invaders on native ecosystems are widely acknowledged, although the evidence is sometimes speculative, especially in riparian zones. We examined the changes in floristic diversity, stand structure ...
Impacts of invasive alien trees on threatened lowland vegetation types in the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa
(Elsevier B.V., 2017)
This study investigated the autogenic recovery potential of native vegetation after clearing of dense stands of invasive alien trees in two critically endangered vegetation types in South Africa's Cape Floristic Region: ...
Managing urban plant invasions: a multi-criteria prioritization approach
Alien plant invasions in urban areas can have considerable impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services (ES). Managing urban plant invasions is particularly challenging given the complex interactions between ecological, ...
Perceptions of impact: Invasive alien plants in the urban environment
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
Many alien plant species are introduced to urban areas to create, augment or restore ecosystem services (ES). However, many of these species spread beyond original plantings, sometimes causing negative effects on existing ...
A multi-criterion approach for prioritizing areas in urban ecosystems for active restoration following invasive plant control
Resources for biodiversity conservation and invasive plant management are limited, and restoring invaded vegetation is labour-intensive and expensive. Managers must prioritize their actions to achieve their goals efficiently ...
